Showcaller & Stage Manager

I have sound stage management training and experienced a huge number of productions of all types, making me well equipped to tackle even the most complex of projects.

I have showcalled many projects using a high level of technology and sophistication, including car reveals for Jaguar and Aston Martin, stadium operas with cast of several hundred artists and real animals, complex West End musicals and massive corporate events such as the Vodafone Ball at Earls Court.

As a Stage Manager I have completed several international theatre tours and corporate projects, working extensively throughout Europe, in Hong King, Singapore, Australia and Japan.

i understand deadlines, how to prioritize, how to assess what is possible and look for solutions to challenges and maintain an overview of the delivery process to ensure effective execution. I  work well with both crew and client and am calm, pragmatic, flexible and methodical in my work.


I am great at delivery and have good client management skills. My pragmatic attitude and flexible approach teamed with the ability to prioritize workloads, manage budgets and deliver in a highly effective way make me a good Producer.

I love working on a strategic level, enabling clear message communication through the use of clever production and high impact and relevant visual content as well as supporting speakers in their presentation development and performance. My understanding of production enables me to effectively realise a creative vision.

My very extensive experience leaves me well placed and comfortable to work at senior management level and my diplomatic skills and ‘big picture’ view aid me in becoming a trusted and  respected player in any production team and to any client.

Project Manager & Project Coordinator

I am foremost an organiser, project manager and administrator and these key skills underpin all areas of  my work. I have an understanding of process, a love of detail combined with a broad production understanding, all of which serves to make me an extremely useful member of any team.

My roles as Production Coordinator for Andrew Lloyd Webber at the Really Useful Theatre Company and Head of Show Administration at The Millennium Dome demonstrate my abilities in this area.

Content Developer & Speaker Trainer

I was a Director of small consultancy working with clients to improve their communications and business strategy.  We provided speaker training, strategic development of speeches and speaker support materials. I am therefore comfortable working with presenters on a strategic level to develop messages and effective support materials. My theatrical training and my experience working with and rehearsing actors have given me the ability to see how presentation styles can be improved and help speakers become relaxed and comfortable in their delivery and use the speaker support options effectively and creatively.

Logistics Manager

My administrative and organisational skills move easily across into logistics and event management and whilst I would never claim to be a specialist I am happy to work in supporting roles in these areas.

I have extensive experience working as a travelling Logistics Manager for financial roadshows for companies such as Media Tree and Jack Morton.
